that wasn't how the obama administration initially described it publicly. representative peter king of new york said petraeus had briefed the house intelligence committee on september 14, and he does not recall petraeus being so positive at the time that it was a terrorist attack. he thought all along that he made it clear there was terrorist involvement, king said. that was not my recollection. so senator feinstien, did petraeus contradict himself or has he contradicted the white house's version of events? >> we have a transcript of that meeting on that day. and petraeus very clearly said that it was a terrorist attack. and outlined who he thought might be involved in it. so any -- >> this is right after the attack? >> that's the day after the attack. i think there's no question about it. what has concerned me about this is really the politicization of a public statement that was put out by the entire intelligence committee, which susan rice on the 16th, who was asked to go before the people and use that statement, did. i have read every one of the five interviews she did that day. she wa
with a senior fellow at the hoover institution. he singled out the obama administration for what he calls its indifference. >> we have to go back and re-examine the diplomatic setting, if you will. people will be pushed to say, we can't afford to ignore this region. we can't afford to ignore this conflict because we look back on the last four years and the indifference, if you will, of the obama administration to what's happening on the west bank in gaza. and i think there will be pressure. there will be pressure from egypt, from turkey. there will be quaepressure from qatar. these are the places that are most sympathetic to hamas. >> discussing the u.s. response to the israeli/palestinian crisis. >>> we've got a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. the new reality and a rude awakening for the gop. get with it or keep losing. >>> the new faces of congress, gay, bisexual hindu. meet those making capitol hill more diverse than ever. >>> the new normal. when it comes to sex, batteries and technology are involved. >>> all that plus a real-life soap oper
lawmakers are trying to figure out what the obama administration knew about the deadly attack on bengauze where i. cmn's state of the union host candy crowley is live in washington. candy, good morning. what are lawmakers expecting in this investigation? >> well, you know, what's interesting is this investigation -- and there are many of them going on, not just on capitol hill. you know, there's an outside one as well. has to do with the run-up to what happened in benghazi. was more security asked for by the ambassador himself prior to this horrific event in benghazi? were they aware of any kind of increased security because it was 9/11? then there was the attack itself. what the heck happened? how was it that we lost four americans in that attack that went on for hours and hours? why didn't help come? there's many questions. then there's the aftermath, and that is, wait a second, when did the administration know it was not about a videotape, it was not about a riot outside the benghazi consulate? it was, in fact, a terrorist attack. was it a planned terrorist attack? who were the terrori
over the obama administration response but i bigger issue, why personnel were poorly protected. >> we have to find out why you send an embassador unguarded with a few libyan guards and c.i.a. was not there to guard him. >> didn't you have one of the stop date pickup truck -- >> we did. that's not his function to determine security. we've got the right person coming in to talk about that. >> what we know now about the intelligence of the terrorists in benghazi, it was irresponsible to have our state department personnel there with only three security guards. they were easily overround in the attack of september 11. we should have given them the protection they deserve or closed that mission in benghazi as the british government had done a short while before. >> join us, chris wallace. good morning. >> good morning. >> that's a great point. in a way it's somehow been lost in the controversy. they were like sitting ducks. >> there are legitimate questions to ask about susan rice and the timeline, the talking points but nobody died because of that. if it was a coverup it was unsuccessful
of congress? >> reporter: republicans say the altered talking points show the obama administration wanted for political reasons to minimize the possibility of terrorism early on. democrats say it shows the facts were still coming in. >> looking at the raw intelligence, there were many conflicting reports some that said there were protests some that said there weren't. there were groups claiming responsibility, others denying responsibility. it took time to get it right. >> why was the talking point memo initially released from the cia after it went through the process, why were certain things taken out? why was there such an emphasis on this youtube video as opposed to the other motivations that could have sparked the attack? >> reporter: the cia talking points memo would have been run through the justice department and other u.s. intelligence agencies before it was given to lawmakers. >> harris: thank you hole molly. we'll learn more about the libya probe and general petraeus' resignation from senator saxby chambliss vice chair of the senate intelligence committee and senator lieberman.
'm not sure in the alternative what advantage anyone thinks the obama administration was going to get by misleading. the event happened. did anyone think the obama administration was trying to preserve some illusion that terrorists never would hit us as long as obama was president? we have been at war with terrorists 11 years and lost thousands of lives. i don't understand the point that graham is making, and the idea to question why did you put susan rice on the talk shows? administrations make decisions every week about who they will put out to repeat talking points. it doesn't really make much sense to me to be honest. >> to that end, then, amy, you have senator graham, other republicans, john mccain for one, they are calling for a special prosecutor. john harwood brings up these questions, but does it ego to the level of needing a special prosecutor? how far do you think this will go? >> clearly there is a movement on the republican side to keep this going. as we heard senators graham and mccain want a special investigation. we have representative mike enentire, the chairman of th
. the big difference this time, one difference this time is the position of the obama administration, which began in 2009 seeking to distance itself name usually from israel and ending its first term supporting israel which is an interesting evolution on the point of obama and in my view a hopeful one. >> there were a couple other differences. one is hamas has longer range missiles than four years ago and the middle east of 2012 is different than the middle east of 2008. we have the arab spring, egypt is no longer run by a dictator but leaders of the muslim brotherhood. what are the challenges for israel and the u.s. now? >> if you look at the whole foreign policy portfolio that obama is facing, not just the problem in gaza, but we still have the problem with pakistan, iran, egypt and libya is still not a stable situation. i think it only amplifies the problem that this is a really dangerous world, and i think part of obama's struggle in the coming months and year is going to get some hold on exactly what our policies are, what is the degree of toughness that we are going to employ because
in the first two years of the obama administration. she wrote that she argued that nation states should see the degree of sovereignty to what she calls transnational networks. vertically, this is a direct quote, nations should seed sovereign authority to supernational institutions like the international criminal court, vertically, something above the nations, supernational institution. she maintains such transparent networks, quote, can perform many of the functions of a world government, legislation, administration, and adjudication without the form thereby creating an effective global rule of law." well, she was the person, policy planning, the key think tank of the state department the first two years of the obama administration. a republican i'll mention, currently the president of the council on foreign relations, a special assistant to president george hw bush, and during the administration of the george w. bush, was directer of policy and planning, and richard says it's time to rethink sovereignty. he argues that they are not weaker in reality, but it needs to become weaker. states s
. how much does president obama's administration mere error lincoln? >> it was so much worst for abraham lincoln. first in the 1850s, the issue of slavery shattered his own party, which was the prig party. then in the election of 1860, the democratic party provided all the slavery and that elected abraham lincoln with just 40% of the popular vote. then even before lincoln was even inaugurated, southern states began to remove themselves from the union. things were so tense, he had to be snuck into washington under the cover of darkness. >> professor litchman what does president obama admire about president lincoln? >> i think there's a lot barack obama could learn from abraham lincoln and so could every politician today. let me start with my favorite lesson, and that is take the pollsters, the hucksters, the analysts and the ad men and fire every one of them. abraham lincoln had to act on principle, in a way that no pollster or no advisor would ever have suggested because they're always bringing you down to the lowest common denominator and telling you, don't be bold and don't take risks,
the affair and effectively black mailed him to taylor his testimony about benghazi so it would suit the obama administration? >> no, i don't think so. you have to know david pert - petraeus. he would not have done that and i would suspect if somebody tried to black mail him or influence. he would come out and let everyone know. he testified before congress numerous times. i was with him in five of those times. and he will tell it straight forward based on the information he had at the time. >> we know it changes over time. >> you he's finding out more in the fog of war through about the benghazi. >> i think over time more and more information becomes. i was not the testimony. or he wouldn't have told me what he said . i have to leave it there. thank you for coming out and speakingitous. eye spirited debate. and much more on general petraeus and the probe we labeled benghazi gate. with the spark cash card from capital one, sven gets great rewards for his small business! how does this thing work? oh, i like it! [ garth ] sven's small business earns 2% cash back on every purche, everday! woo-hoo
not to go in on the ground. the big difference this time is the obama administration that began to distance itself from israel. first term supporting israel. that is an interesting evolution on obama. hopeful one. >> chris: there are other differences, too. hamas has longer range missiles. middle east is different from 2012 of the middle east of 2008. the arab spring. run by the leaders of the muslim brotherhood. what are the challenges for israel and the u.s. now? >> if you look at the foreign policy portfolio that obama is facing. we still have problem of pakistan and iran. libya is not a stable situation. it only amplifies the problem. this is a dangerous world. it will get some hold on exactly what the policies are. what is the degree of toughness that we are going to employ? that is still in doubt. they held flurry of closed door sessions with the top administration officials. best as you can tell, because they were closed door, what did we learn about the administration actions before, during and after the attack? >> there were comments about whether it was a video or terrorist attack
of how the obama administration handled the attack on gaza. democratic congressman ron barbour bested -- >> rescue crews have found a man's body in the gulf of mexico. they believe he is one of the two crewmembers missing after an explosion on an oil blat form. the body has not been identified yet. >>> the crisis in the middle east has intensified and we'll meet someone who's inside the inner circle in the white house, we'll ask what's going on behind closed doors right now. the wheels of progress haven't been very active lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. cool. you found it. wow. nice place. yeah.

months, the obama administration has proposed thousands of new government regulations. how those could affect you, your family, job and business. we ask a guest from the national federation of independent business next. sometimes what we suffer from is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most comm
% cash back on almost everything. >>> we could see changes in the obama administration, sooner rather than later. >> the president faces a number of challenges right now, including avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff. joining us is david gregory. >> good morning, david. >> good morning. >> a lot of talk about david petraeus. the spotlight this week is when he went before the intelligence committee to talk about the attacks on libya. >> that's right. i think that's become a big focus beyond his personal problems and his affair, and the question of whether there was a government coverup at some level? a lot of focus on susan rice, the ambassador who came on the show who said this was a spontaneous attack, not something terror related. she did testify about that the real issue we'll tackle this morning was had she contradicted the view of the administration, saying she did believe it was terrorism all along, and even at the outset, talking points given by the intelligence community to susan rice, that have the elimination of any reference to the terror attack. >> will this set up a confi
he are going to see happen. >>> he knew it was terrorism, he told them so. why did the obama administration change david ' talking points in the benghazi attacks i will ask a congressman when we come back before copd... i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd including chronic bnchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. symbirt may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, d some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. with copd, i thought i'd miss our family tradition. now symbicort significantly improves my lung function, starting within 5 minutes. and that makes a difference in my breathin
altered his testimony about benghazi because members of the administration or someone knew about this affair and effectively blackmailed him to tailor his testimony about benghazi so it would suit the obama administration? >> no. i don't think so. you have t to know david petrae. he would not have done that. in fact, i would suspect that if somebody had tried to black mail him or influence him a certain way, he would do the exact opposite anden come out and let everyone know. he's testified before congress numerous times. i was with him during five of those times, and he will tell it straight forward the way it is based on the information he has at that time. we know truth changes over time a little bit as you get more information. >> so you think that's what's happening now, he's just finding out more through the fog of war about benghazi? >> well, i think over time more and more information becomes available. i wasn't at the testimony yesterday. i don't have the need to know or the clearance to know any more, and he wouldn't have told me exactly what he said anyway because he d

in the region. u.s. dealing with north korea, syria, iran. so this is part of the overall effort by the obama administration to continue pushing this refocus or this pivot is the word they like to use to asia. we saw last year, at the end of last year when the president did an asia trip and australia announced that u.s. troops, marines, would be going to that region. that was part of the defense component of this. they also see great benefits both domestically in the u.s. but also in this region. the president has talked about how trade in this region could lead to jobs at home. so these are some of the issues that the president will be addressing, but perhaps first and foremost we'll be talking about the push for democracy across the region and how thailand can play a role in that, victor. >> so myanmar is next. is that a bit controversial? >> reporter: well, it is. i mean this is a big moment because it's first time that a u.s. president has gone to myanmar, also known as burma. it is a country that has been closed until recently. about two years ago we've seen this sort of movement to refo

this conflict. because we look back on the last four years, and the indifference, if you will, of the obama administration to what's happening on the west bank in gaza. and is i think we are -- there will there be pressure from jipts, there will be pressure from turkey, there will be pressure from qatar, the three countries most sympathetic to ham hamas. there will be pressure to produce some kind of settlement. >> let's bring in cnn contributorses, will cain, elzy granderson. elzy, you're first. is president obama being indifferent? does the white house need to do more? >> i don't understand how someone can consider the white house being indifferent when this administration has given more money to israel than any other administration before it. i don't understand how you can consider this president to be indifferent when it's because of the president they had the technology and military equipment necessary to protect themselves from the bombs coming into the country. i don't want to see us go to another war. i know quite a few americans feel the same way. and i talked to some sources in d.
